Hello, I have had this chest of drawers made for M Friedman and Co. I obtained it in 1983 from an antique store with not much history. Can you give me an approx date and value?

Answer
Friedman was a furniture reseller and did not manufacturer furniture so we will never know who manufactured this chest.  

it was made around 1900 in the empire style.  the front is done in walnut veneer, well matched.  

if i had the mirror I woud sell it at 750. 650 without.  assuming there was one.
